Bras for the Cause
The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation has tremendous support in the Denver area with a number of key events.  
Leading up to the centerpiece of their annual efforts, the "Pink Tie Affair," is the Bras for the Cause fund raiser.

A select group of local and national celebrities and artists take a plain bustier and transform it into a piece of art.  These
creations are exhibited throughout Denver for the month of October, then are auctioned off to raise money for the foundation.  
Jay Leno, Patti LaBelle, Tommy Hilger, Michelle Branch were just some of the many familiar figures who donated their time
and efforts in the making of these charity-driving undergarments.

Below is my contribution: the hands of the foundation have  a tight grip on the enemy; a deadly serpent named breast
cancer.  This piece received one of the highest bids of the entire group. (
